I'm intending to get a MBP after witnessing the sleek interface it has and ease of usage the OS provides. However, i'm curious as to if MBP are able to handle image rendering and animation on programs like lightwave,maya etc based on the specs it has. Windows laptop have a lure on me with their higher specifications that makes me want me to get them rather than a Mac. Any graphics artists or anyone can provide me some advice based on your experience? Another side question, I've been hearing that Apple computers and laptops are great for graphics work like Photoshop, but is there a reason behind it? As in is it due to way Mac OS is designed to handle them or is there another reason? Thanks alot.
